Our Goal – $1,500,000

Help us renew the fireplace of knowledge with needed renovations to the Kinyaa’áanii Library in Tsaile, AZ.  This fundraising campaign will run until the end of 2020.


Renew the Fireplace of Knowledge

The element of fire is sacred to Navajo people. At Diné College, the Kinyaa’áanii Library is considered the fireplace of knowledge. It is the illuminating witness to the growth and development of Navajo education.  Since the library opened its doors in 1974, researchers, students, faculty, local and campus community members have convened in this space to study and strive to meet their research and information needs.

With the launch of this campaign, Diné College will begin the transformation of the Kinyaa’áanii Library to become a library of the future. With new technology, active work spaces, and a creative layout this library will boost our research potential, support academic endeavors, and become a hub for community and academic growth.


How will your money be spent? To begin, the renovations will include cosmetic updates to the inside of the library. If the initial $1.5M ask is surpassed, we will be able to upgrade the structure of the library.

Proposed upgrades:

  • New flooring
  • New furniture

  • New layout

  • New study pods
